How is SCCA different than other Catholic schools?
In our approach.
Why? The time is now. Now, more than ever, we are called to learn about, receive and share Christ's message: on a personal level, within our families and school community, as well as the community in which we live. Our world is evolving quickly, often outpacing itself. At a critical time for Catholic schools, South City Catholic Academy steps in as The Renaissance in Catholic Education. In an effort to preserve, sustain and boost enrollment, SCCA combines a few parish schools in a new model. Some of our most notable differences, among others, include:
- Governance - SCCA is a partnership model school versus a parish school
- Creative staffing - SCCA has hired a full-time art teacher, full-time PE/Health instructor and will also feature prominent members of our music community leading the charge with Music and Band.
- Faith formation - Our faith formation addresses the whole child, whole school, whole community, blending rich traditions with innovation.
- Instructional practices- Best practices and growth mindset replace the traditional in our classrooms. Students are prepared for their futures with intense hands-on, minds-on work. Teachers meet the needs of all students with thorough work on curriculum, specific intervention strategies and provide authentic learning opportunities that connect learners to the real world.
- Voice - student, teacher and parent voice will allow all to contribute to the mission of this innovative, Catholic, school community.
- Technology - SMART Boards, iPads and Chromebooks play a large role in our curriculum.
